benefits as couples. in fact, bill clinton who signed doma into law when he was president, is now asking the u.s. supreme court to overturn it. let's bring in cnn legal contributor powell cowen. how much will the reversal potentially make? >> supreme court justices would tell you they're immune from politicians lobbying them. they're appointed for life by the president, and the founding fathers frankly set up the system so you would have sort of an independent judiciary. i don't think bill clinton's position will have a major impact on the court. >> so what the constitutional argument that will be made to keep doma in place? >> well, there are two cases before the court this week. one on tuesday and one on wednesday. the first on tuesday is called the prop 8 case. california case, and it's very interesting because the california supreme court said gay marriage is legal. they said it's against the california constitution to ban it. and then lawyers came in and voters went out and they adopted prop 8, which amended the california constitution to make it illegal. so they stuck it to the jud
that hillary clinton is publicly supporting same-sex marriage. of course, her husband, former president bill clinton, who signed that into law say that d.o.m.a. should be overturned and senator rob portman is citing his familiarity with this issue, his son is gay. how do you think this is going to play out in the 2014 midterms and then subsequently 2016 general election? >> well, alex, we've seen a clear shift in public opinion on this issue over the last ten years. it's been quite dramatic. all sorts of polls now, including the reuter's poll last week shows that the public supports gay marriage even civil unions. even in the south, the majority supports gay marriage or civil unions together. democrats are united on this issue. they say it's a big winner, especially among younger voters, and there's a real sort of active debate within the republican party about how to play this. there's a lot of people saying we've got to stop emphasizing these social issues because they are not working in our favor. however, if you're going to have a divisive 2016 primary, rick santorum is going to want to
secretary of state hillary clinton getting on the right side of history in her view and the view of her party coming up with a video changing the clinton view on doma and in the republican party, we're hearing from all across the spectrum that regardless of what the supreme court does the party needs to have a more libertarian view on this. republicans are telling us it would be a huge help with fund-raising especially in the big states of new york, california, and florida. if the republican party were to be more open on this. and people are telling us that investors don't want to invest what they think losing national elections which could continue to be the case if republicans stay very narrow on this issue. republicans i talked to even extremely conservative ones, very christian conservative republicans are telling me the polls they have seen in the last couple of weeks have been eye-opening, showing not only that young people very heavily in favor of gay marriage, but if you extrapolate that a little bit in just 10, 20 years, this is going to be 70/30 issue that republicans are goin
and launch the effort far sooner than either bill clinton or george w. bush did in their administrations. then it fell flat quickly. what was interesting to hear what the president said when he arrived formally as to why he made this his first trip of his second term. >> across this region the winds of change bring both promise and peril. so i see this visit as an opportunity to reaffirm the unbreakable bond between our nations, to restate america's unwavering commitment to israel's security, and to speak directly to the people of israel and to your neighbors. >> and he's going to be going to ramallah meeting with the palestinian authority there, the head there, abbas in the west bank. he's meeting with jord ab's king abdullah on this trip with mubarak not in egypt anymore, the single most important arab leader in the peace process if something happens. now president perez, he spoke about the peace process after the president spoke. >> we long to see an end to the conflict with the palestinians, to see the palestinians enjoying fraed freedom and prosperity in their own state. we extend o
back to the clinton administration. just look at the scorecard and this is where the american we're talking about an extraordinary cost in human lives and resources and at the end of the day, we didn't have to do this and it wasn't effective. when you look at iraq now as a nation, it has not progressed in the way the liberators said it would progress. i hope the people open their eyes on this occasion to reflect very, very thoughtfully about what has occurred here and it's only doing the people of the united states who can make sure this never happens again. >> the justification on the other side has been look, saddam hussein was a monster. he was evil. getting rid of him was not a bad thing and if that was the ultimate consequence of the iraq war, then so much the better. what do you say to that kind of twisted logic? >> i think there are many monsters, sadly, in the world as we both know and we don't go around invading sovereign countries that did no wrong to us in order to topple them and we have lots of monsters. we've had lots of monsters who remained our friends. >> exactly
of staff to former president clinton said, this is the most predictable financial crisis in the history of the country that's looming. and this was several years ago. and nothing has gotten better since then. wii juswe just careen closer anr to the tipping point. senator gregg noted that mandatory spending is a primary -- unfortunately, all of the measures put in place have ignored smart entitlement reforms to control spending over the long term and comprehensive tax reforms to make the tax code more ta efficient. we all heard that before from people all across the political speck tom, republicans and democrats, liberals and conservatives. there is a growing consensus that all of these elements must be addressed. douglas holtz-eakin, former director of the congressional budget office noted that the level and projected growth of federal debt are is a threat to future prosperity. the nation, he said, despite claims to the contrary, remains on a damaging debt pathway. dr. holtz-eakin countered arguments that reducing the debt is not urgent because the crisis is a distant threat by pointing
went into kuwait to kick saddam hussein out of kuwait. during the clinton administration, america brought $11 trillion of kuwait currency. then they revalued the currency. mr.of the main reasons why hatednd saddam hussein each other, he promised him he would not stop him when he went into kuwait read they turned around and did. this is a ploy to get us into the middle east. capitol other news, on hill, the house starts a debate on paul ryan's budget. they will be debating back and voting on amendments. we told you yesterday, it is official today, that the assault weapons ban will not be part of a larger gun control senate package. the senate majority leader told it did notesterday, have enough votes read host: dianne feinstein said yesterday, she tried her best but it was not good enough. the washington post has this headline -- host: this is the front page of the daily news, shame on the united states -- host: on president obama's visit you can seebank -- posters that palestinians were holding up with the words, no hope on them. following up yesterday on the south carolina first

did this and president johnson did this and in my judgment president clinton did this remarkably wem. and i think president obama is getting better. today he's meeting with 13 senators tonight at the jefferson hotel in washington. which maybe our conference helped move along. but it is tough -- i want to mention one other thing. it's tough because it's hard tore deal with the congress and sometimes it's unpless tonight deal with the congress. but there is no other choice, the president must engage. but one of the other issues i want to raise quickly is another factor, and charlie you talked about this a bit. in the days we were building this country, the space program and all these wonderful things it was easier to work together. let's look at the things they are dealing with today, sequester, how are we going to cut medicare, social security, how are we going to get the budget down. these are tough. these are politically difficult positions to take. in an environment where everything is just cutting and reducing, it's not natural for people to enjoy doing the job under those circums
in the states. it took a couple times to get but newt gingrich finally got bill clinton to sign it into law. when ronald reagan was tnt president but the governor of california and tax reform happened in that state. when ronald reagan was the president and signed the law that slashed marginal tax breaks. real reform happened in the states. this was mentioned yesterday, in america there are 30 states that are republican governors and nearly as many that have republican legislatures. [applause] that's the good news. the good news is we have success and it is happening in our states and we can learn from that to tell our friends in washington how to move forward. in the state, to be successful we have to optimistic, relevant, and we have to be courageous. rest me talk to you about those three things. when it talks about being inspirational and optimistic is one thing that is interesting, when i first ran for gofer. when i say first, because who would have v thought i would be elected twice in the same term. [laughter] i conducted a job interview. i interviewed the people of my state to be thei
of the conversation on iraq. go back and look at the floor speeches hillary clinton and john kerry voted for the iraq war resolution on the floor of the senate. what they said is we are empowering the president to have a credible threat to wield in order to make diplomacy happen. the logic behind much of the support for the iraq war resolution, and that whole month leading up to the actual invasion was the idea that it was only the credible threat of an intervention that had gotten the inspectors back into iraq. that was making diplomacy possible. what ended up happening at the end of that road? the thing that was put on the table, right, was picked up and used, right? this is like the checkov quote if you put a gun on stage in the first act, it has to go off in the third. if you put military intervention on the table in our political environment, you increase the likelihood of it being used. there's this bizarre argument which goes around that you can incredibly wield military intervention as a threat and the more credible it is the less likely it gets used because it forces diplomacy. i don't think
into another recession. 7 million jobs created under bush. 22 million under clinton, right after we raised the taxes. that was in seven or eight years. what we are proposing in our budget -- let's put it this way, under the ryan budget, total receipts of government would be about 19% of gdp. under the reagan administration 23.5%.o under the caucus budget, receipts would go up to 21.8%. the lower range of the reagan administration, budget receipts. what inhibits job creation is not high taxes. history does not show that. what and him it -- what inhibits job creation is low demand. if people do not have money, they are not spending it to buy products. we had a housing bubble collapse in 2007 that eliminated eight dollars trillion in value. when it didtgages for closure as a result. we're still about two dollars trillion -- to join dollars below. people are not investing. ?hy not because of uncertainty. you are not going to hire somebody or invest in a new factory if nobody is going to buy a new product. if everybody is saving money because they do not have money, which is what has happened i
a president doing basically what the israeli palestinian conflict is, since carter i suppose, the way clinton did it with the -- with the ira, british idea. this can be solve. this can be permanently over. let's get past this. so i'm fascinated to see what people's responses will be. if you watched fox, you didn't see it. >> they didn't show it at all? >> hal: no. we'll be back right after this. 1-800-steph-1-2 is the number. and we're going to play some of this, but i also want to get from you guys how you think the week went. real genuine criticism? >> of us? >> hal: yes. because the next time we do this -- >> oh, please be kind. >> hal: -- if there is a next time, we'll get a real read on this. am i awake right now? i don't even know. we'll be right back on the "stephanie miller show." >> what is all of that noise? >> announcer: it's the "stephanie miller show." ♪ come in now and sea food differently. visit redlobster.com now for an exclusive $10 coupon on two lobsterfest entrees. i think the number one thing that viewers like about the young turks is that we're ho
? >> they've got a long memory but if hillary colin con couldn't negotiate this -- if hillary clinton couldn't negotiate this, i don't think john kerry will be able to deliver anything differently. that status of force agreement was critical. i think we should remember this when we are dabbling in whether or not to have a long-term presence and influence in afghanistan, the problem is iraq is that much more important. it is strategically more significant and we let it slip away. >>brian: after all that hard work and sacrifice. thanks so much. 17 after the hour. thanks for joining us this morning. >>> remember those shovel-ready projects? why are we now paying for a gas tax? fox business's charles payne is here telling us where that money is going. >> it was the ad no one was supposed to see. supposed to see. now ford is under fire. what's droid-recognition ? understanding you clearly... what is the capital of zimbabwe ? ... the first time you ask with the google voice search. the droid razr maxx hd by motorola. droid recognition. droid powerful. mommy's having a french fry. yes she is, yes s

-door speech to donors, politicians and media, bill clinton spoke about gun owners. a lot of these people, all they have as their hunting and their fishing, or they have been listening to this stuff for so long that they believe it, and we remember barack obama saying "it is not surprising they get bitter. they cling to guns or religion or cult the arrogance of their superiority reminds us that they do not give us right. we grant them power. they do not make us free. we are free already. as long as we have the second amendment, we always will be. we are america, and our politicians are only as powerful as we, the people, allow them to be. the nra ad -- philip rucker, how effective is the nra message right now? guest: a message like that is effective with the base of the nra and many americans that live in some of these dates -- it's dates -- states. you play and add like that in ,est virginia, north carolina north dakota, and it resonates. it is a message about the elite in washington and san francisco, which is a reference to nancy pelosi, the democratic leaders in the house, and it is really
deficits for the first time in -- since the clinton administration. bringing deficits and revenues in line, mr. speaker. what we do is we prioritize those programs that are so important to so many americans. as you see from this chart, mr. speaker, social security spending up each and every year in our budget while extending the life of the social security trust fund. medicare spending up each and every year in our budget while extending the life of the medicare trust fund. mr. speaker, if a budget is nothing else, it is a statement of our values and our priorities. and the republican study committee's value and priority is to end the passing of responsibilities from this generation to the next, to rb -- to be responsible for the bills we create today and paying for those priorities today. four short years, mr. speaker, we can be out of this conversation about debt and deficit and begin the conversation about freing the next generation from the $16.7 trillion that you and i and previous congresses have wracked up on their behalf. with that, i reserve the balance of my time. the chair: the
all of that on sean hannity. >> bill clinton went about trying to deal with the middle east question in a way that really began to make some progress. there was a balanced perspective. this president is clumsy. he says one thing on monday, changes his mind on tuesday and says a different thing on wednesday. and he doesn't understand that what that does is create a lack of trust. in foreign policy, the one thing i learned working with george herbert walker bush is that the most important thing in the world is for people to trust america and to have a feeling that america will be there in dealing with the national security issues. on both counts, this president obama has lost. >>steve: it is curious, because if you're just watching -- if you saw the president with netanyahu yesterday, you would think they're getting along great. in the past, for all intents and purposes, it seemed like they hated each other. the fact that b.b. netanyahu used to go to school with mitt romney, that didn't help things. but there is a quote today that apparently a senior israeli official said there was --
clinton was president. finally he hit someone again and he came before my chord because that bumped up to being a felony. i understand. we took him to the board and released him, i often want to know, did you stick around long enough to watch them come across the border or did you drive away after you dropped them off? this is a huge problem. with each one of these federal felony convictions, it means we are paying for a prosecutor, law enforcement to get these people, then a prosecutor. we are paying for a defense attorney for them. we are paying for the officers for the prosecutor, the offices for the law enforcement, the judges, the appellate courts, and the number one conviction is for federal felony reentry after they have been deported? when i start thinking about that fact, it becomes pretty clear the best thing this administration could do for this country is secure the border so they do not have to keepre- catching the people who have already been deported. to heck with how much a wall costs or drone coverage. whatever it takes. this message should go up to the president. this
, it had been created by president clinton. the affordable care act will help provide the health coverage that is needed by millions of americans. i rise today to speak particularly about texas. some 24% of the population of texas are uninsured. and yet our state government has refused to accept the expanded medicaid. so today, mr. speaker, i make a public plea on behalf of the millions of texans who get up and work every day, who do not have health insurance, to be able to have a state government that is ignoring their plea, that is to have expanded medicaid to provide health insurance for working texans and poor texans. those that work as well below the minimum wage. it seems selfish that the concerns of those who lead state government are all political and not in any way concerned about the mothers and fathers and children who all the medical professionals from county governments to private practice have said expanded medicaid coverage, if taken by the state of texas, like florida, like ohio, will save lives. do it now. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlewoman yields back
. my devotion to law and human rights and the guiding principles of my faith. host: hillary clinton taking up two cases on that. speaking of the supreme court, there's a "washington post" this morning. justices appear divided on an arizona law the federal registration form that congress does states the most accepting views require thoonl they swear under oath that they are a citizen but applicants require additional proof and the u.s. court of appeals for the ninth circuit ruled against the state saying arizona could not add requirements to the federal law. still a ruling for arizona could to door for states to add requirements to the federal registration form and the issue seemed to split the court along familiar eye logical lines. as we told you president obama heads to israel tonight and here's "the new york times," ama and in israel seeking to seek common ground with bring u and how to financial stability to a government crippled by international aid shortfalls and the obama administration last month unfroze hundreds of millions in assistance to the overnment of president mahmo
with john endingler, welfare reform happened in the states. newt gingrich finally got bill clinton to sign it into law a little bit later. you go all the way back to the early 970s when ronald reagan wasn't the president, but the governor of california, and tax reform happened in that state. and it wasn't until later, ironically back in california, when ronald reagan as the president signed into raw the economic recovery -- into law the economic recovery act. real reform happened in the states. as was mentioned yesterday, there are now in america some 30 states that have republican governors and nearly as many that have republican legislatures. [applause] and so that's the good news. the good news is we have success, and it's happening in our states, and we can learn from that to tell our friends and our colleagues in washington how to move forward. because, you see, in the states to be successful we have to be optimistic. we have to be relevant. and most importantly, we have to be courageous. let me talk to you a little bit about each of those three things. you see, when it talks about be
clinton and exploded our nation's debt. now after a decade of reckless financial management, the majority is proposing another budget that is unserious as it is extreme. take for example the field of scientific research. more than 50% of our economic growth since world war ii can be attributed to the development and adoption of new technologies. yet the budget proposed drastic cuts to research at the national institutes of health, the national science foundation, the national err naughtics and space administration, among others. as -- err naughtics and space ad-- arow naughtics and space -- a; eronautics and space administration as aamong others. you cannot turn on and off research like a faucet. under the majority's budget that valuable research will be ended and it's important -- and these important discoveries will probably not be made in the united states. the majority wants to impose such cuts on top of the cuts contained in the sequester, even though this effects of the sequester are just beginning to be felt. for example, in the coming weeks, airport control towers will begin to cl
hillary clinton. and president obama at the house with had a special irish message. >> obama: there's an old irish saying that is the recipe for a long life is to leave the table hungry, leave the bed sleepy leave the bar thirsty, we'll see if that works tonight. [ laughter ] >> bill: and president obama took chuck todd to task for asking too many questions. >> another question i have for you -- >> obama: chuck how many you got. you are going to do this to the israeli press -- you see how the young lady from channel one. she had one question. >> bill: yeah, come on chuck. and finally weatherman says birthday to a very special friend watching the channel. >> any way, christie and joe hornton ninth anniversary, and hugh jaynus turning ten. [ laughter ] >> what? >> it's one of those -- >> bill: yeah, huge anus. happy birthday. >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." iq will go way up.

things. for instance, first term of the obama administration, secretary clinton tries to signal friendship, february 2009. the second month of the administration. they go on a bender for more than a year. so i think what we're doing by going there first we're feeding their already inflated sense of self-importance. i don't think this trip is going to work. adam: there have been i don't want to say military skirmishes, but instances where they cut off u.s. navy vessels in international waters. that happened three or four years ago. there is the incident of the cyberattacks which have been traced to china from the united states. secretary lew would be discussing that with chinese leaders. why would he be discussing that perhaps not mr. hagel or secretary kerry, secretary of state? >> secretary kerry will discuss it a couple weeks time when he goes to beijing. every administration official is doing this. the reason is last tuesday the director of national intelligence james clapper identified cyber attacks as the number one security threat to the united states. we all know where th
at president bill clinton who balanced the budget with a republican controlled house. opportunity and jobs ran rampant. we need to return to that today. so we are asking this president, please, work with us, mr. president. but what's worse than all of this is how senate democrats have failed to serve you. the last time that they even passed a budget was before the ipad existed. before the ipad existed. we are willing to compromise. we are willing to work with people, but how can we work with senate democrats when they are not working at all? they are not doing their job at all to serve you, the american people. their budget right now that they are working on does nothing more than raise taxes. they want more of your money, more money out of your paycheck. ask yourself does washington really need more of your money? we are $16 trillion in debt. we have deficits we can't even wrap our arms around, and they want more of your money. if you were a financial advisor that put you $1 million in debt and ripped through your college savings for your children and all of your checking account and said, ju
. you might say the clinton and bush position of being close to israel. in the first term he wanted to create distance. he was kind of appealing to the arab countries and that's over. he's not saying-- he's kind of changed his position and the question, does he really mean it or is it just talk? >> we asked at the beginning what did president obama accomplish his goal? here is what the president said about what he intended to do in israel. listen. >> put yourself in their shoes. look at the world through their eyes. it's not fair that a palestinian child cannot grow he up he-- up in a state of their own. >> clayton: and the president said he wanted the opportunity to speak directly to the israeli people at a time when they're obviously dealing with some major, major problems as it relates to the palestinian people and syria, iran and others, did he accomplish his goal? >> i think he accomplished a the lot of it. he made himself seem friendlier to israel and kind of put the palestinian issue to the side. and because iran and syria are so much more important. he told the palestinians
president clinton had seen president assad in geneva in january 1994. and prior to the trip, we had, you know, the prime minister conveyed to us what it is he wanted to see come out of it. and we actually produced what it is he wanted to see come out of it. so i walked into the meeting with rabin feeling highly confident, you know, all right, we did what you asked. and the first thing he did was immediately devalue what i came with. now, why did he do it? because he knew i was coming to ask something of him. and if you go into these kinds of meetings and the expectations are very high, then each leader is suddenly worried about what you're going to ask of them. when the expectations are low, you're in a much better position to have a serious conversation, and you can actually explore, all right, what are the possibilities here. but maybe the way you frame that conversation is by talking about what are the consequences of not getting anything done with each side? and if the consequences are severe enough, how can we think together about what it is that could be possible, and where could t
